New High-Speed Pick & Place Machine for Nonstop Production of LED Boards
Press release date: February 8, 2013
Manncorp introduces the MC-LEDV3, a new high-speed pick and place machine built to assemble LED tube lights, flexible LED strips and LED bulb boards. The MC-LEDV3 features three pick-and-place heads mounted on a high-precision, ball-screw-driven gantry. Simultaneous pickup, on-the-fly (vision based) component alignment, and feeder placement optimization combine to achieve placement rates of up to 10,000 LEDs per hour, per IPC-9850.
Unlike SMT pick & place machines that have been adapted for LED assembly, MC-LEDV3 is specifically designed for LED boards. Whether configured with a magnetic fixture worktable or an inline conveyor, MC-LEDV3 accommodates flexible strips, circular boards for LED bulbs, and long LED tube boards up to 70" (1800 mm) long. The machine places both standard and domed LEDs from 1 x 0.5 mm to 8 x 8 mm, with positive air pressure and Teflon®-coated nozzles ensuring the release of "sticky" components.
The feeders available for the MC-LEDV3 have also been designed specifically for LED assembly. Brushless motors ensure long life even through 24/7 production. The ability to splice tapes and to have the machine automatically switch to a different feeder when one runs empty means that the MC-LEDV3 can run nearly nonstop, producing LED boards shift after shift.
MC-LEDV3 is backed by a 2-year warranty and supported by Manncorp's experienced technical team. For details and pricing, visit www.manncorp.com/smt/prod-609/pick-and-place-led-mc-ledv3.html .
